History

Easy Company was a United States Army unit made up of a disparate collection of individuals who managed to participate in every major action in the European Theatre of World War II. Each member of Easy Company have their own unusual nicknames, which their leader Sgt. Frank Rock explained that during battle, they would be required to do things their civilian identities might not be able to live with; once the war was over, the nicknames could be left behind once the soldiers resumed their civilian lives.[1]

Easy Company itself is radically different from any other American military units in which one case, they allowed one African American member, Jackie Johnson, into their unit. A definite defiance of racial segregation policy of the Army during the war.

Notes

  • Easy Company is not to be confused with the real life Easy Company, 2nd Battalion of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment. Also known as the "Screaming Eagles" of the 101st Airborne Division. Instead, Easy is designated to the 2nd Battalion of the 141st Infantry.


Trivia

  • There is a Pre-Crisis story where an amnesiac Superman travelled back in time by accident and briefly joined Easy Company under the name 'Tag-Along'. Upon regaining his memory, he faked his own death before returning discreetly to his own time.[1]
